Concept Art Of Ryan Gosling As Doctor Strange Surfaces Online

Last year’s Doctor Strange was immensely well received, becoming the highest grossing origin film of the entire MCU. This, in large parts, was due to Benedict Cumberbatch’s (SherlockStar Trek: Into Darkness) fantastic portrayal of the Sorcerer Supreme. The role, however, was highly sought after, and other high-profile actors like Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator), Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) and Ryan Gosling (The Notebook) were contenders as well.

Concept art of the latter as the Sorcerer Supreme was recently released online by concept artist Court Chu who wrote: “I worked probably not even a day on some version of Doctor Strange years ago, and back then they wanted Gosling.”



Doctor Strange releases on Blu-ray on February 28, 2017.

Are you glad Cumberbatch ended up getting the part, or would you like to see what Gosling would have had to bring to the table? Sound off in the comments or on Twitter / Instagram!
